Niall Horan has announced an intimate world tour.
The 23-year-old Irish hunk is currently riding on the success of the second song from his as-yet-untitled debut solo album, 'Slow Hands', and has announced a 21-date run entitled the 'Flicker Sessions', which will kick off in his hometown of Dublin, Ireland on August 29 and will wrap at The Masonic in San Francisco in the US on November 22.
Announcing the news on Twitter, he wrote: "Hello lovely people, I'm delighted to announce the Flicker Sessions 2017. Go to http://niallhoran.com for all the info ! (sic)"
The One Direction star is expected to release his new record at some point later this year.
Niall received rave reviews for his first single 'This Town' and 'Slow Hands' and, although he can't wait to give fans more content, he said he's not yet thought of a name for it.
He said last month: "I listen to a lot of 80s funk rock, and I started playing on the piano and that came up... and hopefully the album will be later this year. I'm still trying to come up with the name, we've only recently just finished recording it."
And, although One Direction - also comprised of Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles and Liam Payne - are currently on an extended hiatus to focus on solo material, Niall is adamant there's no competition between the foursome.
He explained: "It's great actually, we enjoy it and watching everyone else think that we're rivals - I think it's great because there's room for everyone. And if we were all releasing the same type of songs then that'd be weird, but we're all releasing completely different types of music which is great."
